Former ROH and NWA champion Cody has said on Twitter that his upcoming match against Jay Lethal next month at Ring of Honor will be his last one for the company.
“Jay was the first match I had in ROH two years ago. He will be my last. And I will take the World Championship into free agency,” Rhodes wrote. The event, titled Final Battle, is taking place at The Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday, December 14.
Cody’s contract with ROH expires at the end of this year and there have been a lot of speculation about what he will be doing after that. Cody, along with The Young Bucks, Marty Scurll, and Kenny Omega, have said that they will be sticking together no matter where they go next.
A return to WWE, although possible, is a long shot at this point considering the freedom he’s enjoying not to mention the possibility of All In 2 next year.
